Chris Martin says he'll make a stand with the new Coldplay album

Chris Martin has said he's spent his life playing it safe - but he's ready to make a stand with Coldplay's next album.

The Viva La Vida singer told Q magazine the band's next album is taking inspiration from the the White Rose movement, a group of young people living in Germany in WWII who printed anti-Nazi flyers.

Chris said: "I admire it. I've spent a lot of my life playing it a bit safe or conforming to something, even though I don't agree with it. So I have great respect and admiration for people who don't."

The 33-year-old father-of-three has big ambitions for the new record, although he refused to reveal the title.

He said: "We're very hungry and fired up. In five years, we'll be in our late 30s. You have to have done your best work by then."

Chris added: "We're just trying some risky things."

Having financial security will allow you to develop your creative talents. It's important for you to exercise your imagination at every opportunity. Letting it lay dormant is like refusing to harvest a thriving crop. Stop wasting the valuable gifts you've been given.More
